Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Another blog hop I've been looking forward to for months is the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Amy Tsurata has done another amazing job of getting this all organised with the most incredible list of sponsors. I don't know how she fits it all in, she's a machine!!!

Because I've been in a 'water colouring' mood, I decided to carry the theme into my coffee card:
 
 
I heat embossed a coffee cup in white randomly on some water colour paper. I then went thru my Distress Inks and watercoloured away!! After attaching the panel to the card front, I die-cut the 'thanks' from gold CS and twice from white CS. I glued them all together and then to the front of the card. I then added some bling with some similar colour sequins. A rainbow of coffee goodness!!

The coffee stamp is from Paper Smooches 'Cyber Cafe' and the 'thanks' die is also Paper Smooches. The pink and yellow sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and the blue sequins are from Avery Elle.

I have three other challenges I would like to enter:

Pretty Pink Posh - Watercolour Blog Hop (my third entry)


Paper Smooches - Sparks Challenge Wk 5



Simon Says Stamp - Work it Wednesday - May (Rainbow)

Dinner is cooking, the fire is going and my onesie is calling. I don't usually put it on till after dinner but its the weekend and I stayed up till 3am this morning making cards, so feeling tired, warm and snugly. Might watch a movie in bed with the kids tonight, seems like a very good plan!!

Take care
Shona
